Wounded Warriors receive the assistance they need from AFW2. Wounded Warrior: The only definition that matters
In AFW2, a Wounded Warrior is defined as someone who is very serious or seriously wounded, ill or injured. They have complex medical issues that keep them from performing one or more tasks in the military, many facing medical retirement following years of treatment. They are not all combat-wounded or injured, many have developed life-changing illnesses or have been injured in off-duty accidents. From the young lady who crashed her motorcycle into a tree and lost her leg to the young man who jumped into a lake, fracturing his neck and damaging his spinal cord, the issues that bring Airmen into this program are varied.

When I met Janelle I had no clue what I was getting into.

Retired Senior Airman Hannah Stolberg, and her service dog, Valhalla, share a moment during the adaptive sports camp at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., April 2016.  The base will hosts the week-long Warrior CARE event again this year, helping recovering wounded, ill and injured military members through specific hands-on rehabilitative training.  (U.S. Air Force photo/Samuel King Jr.) There IS a flip side
 It's 7 a.m. on a Thursday and I have to say, this has been the most disappointing week I've had since Air Force Trials; not just with training, but with life.The week has been full of triggers I was not fully prepared for.

No one calls at one in the morning to say they were “just thinking of you.”I received one of those calls 13 years ago and woke to my mom telling me my dad had died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
